Uber Shanghai Has Officially Launched! Uber 正式进驻中国上海！
Uber Shanghai has been testing operations and building a stronger understanding of how to best serve this incredible city since August. The response has been so amazing, we decided to make our love affair with Shanghai official. On Thursday, we officially launched in China’s financial and cultural epicenter.
We celebrated the Uber Shanghai launch in a way that we know the best — by getting together with our beloved supporters and friends at one of the city’s most exclusive venues, KEE Club. Uber wouldn’t be the same without each and every one of them over the past few months. Upon this celebration, we are proud to announce some exciting news including our Chinese name – 优步 (meaning “step forward”) – and newly integrated Alipay on the iOS app. Through these efforts we hope to show Shanghai our commitment to and love for this city — a city that we believe will soon be one of Uber’s flagship cities worldwide.
If you haven’t taken advantage of the Uber experience, now is the time. If you’re a new user, enter the promo code “ubershlaunch” and enjoy up to ¥100 off your first ride in Shanghai.

We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
